Circus Without Borders (70m, U S A) dir. by Susan Gray
CIRCUS WITHOUT BORDERS is an enlightening tale of two circus troupes from opposite ends of the globe who converge to realize a common dream. Using circus arts as a means of self-expression and cultural exchange, the two circuses — Artcirq in the Canadian Arctic and Kalabante in West Africa — give youth in two of the world’s most challenged communities the tools to travel beyond their borders and succeed. The film is a beautiful performance piece; a portal into two remote cultures; and an inspiring story of joy and heartbreak with universal relevance.
